Arsenal’s may have spent £50million on Alexandre Lacazette in the summer, but if some players become available, you literally cannot say no.
Wenger’s motto has always been that it is not based on the position of a player available, but their quality. And it seems that a player of the highest quality may be about to become available, with Borussia Dortmund frontman Aubameyang being disciplined in Germany, leaving Premier League clubs on alert.
The 28-year-old striker has scored a phenomenal 95 goals for Dortmund in 139 games and is arguably the best out and out striker in the world right now. Should he become available, there will be a whole host of clubs in for him. But if he opts for the Premier League, could Arsenal be best placed?
Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all are well stocked in attacking areas with high profile players that would not want to be benched, whilst Tottenham have Kane and could probably not afford Gabon international. Arsenal, on the other hand, play with a fluid front three in which both Lacazette and Aubameyang could potentially play together.
With Alexis set to leave, Aubameyang would be the perfect replacement and arguably an improvement.
I’m certain that Arsenal would be interested should his situation at Dortmund continue to deteriorate, but surely Real Madrid would be the favourites for this one?
